Cloudy start to Wednesday

There is plenty of cloud cover over the Finger Lakes Wednesday morning in the wake of Tuesday’s cold front and storms.

A bit of drizzle or a brief shower cannot be ruled out this morning, but most of the region will remain dry.

The clouds should hang tough through the morning and into the afternoon, but sunshine will start to appear from north to south. Again, a shower could pop up this afternoon, but if any do, they will be few and far between.

Temperatures today will be slow to rise during the morning but should get a boost into the mid and upper 70s this afternoon with the increasing sunshine.

Skies will clear overnight with temperatures dropping into the 50s for most with some low 60s near the Finger Lakes themselves.

Thursday and Friday should both turn out sunny. A few additional clouds will be possible from time to time Thursday but will be hard to come by on Friday.

Many areas will approach 80 degrees on Thursday with low 80s likely for Friday.

Weekend Weather and Beyond

Our trend of generally quiet weather will continue through the weekend.

Both Saturday and Sunday will start out sunny with some puffy clouds bubbling up by the late morning. A few isolated pop up showers could result for the afternoon. A few areas will see some brief rain, most will not.

Temperatures Saturday will hold in the low to perhaps mid 80s. Sunday will be a touch cooler with upper 70s more common.

Monday will follow suit with a mix of sun and clouds and quiet conditions. The chances for a pop-up afternoon shower or storm look minimal, but it is too early to completely rule out. High temperatures should rebound back into the low and mid 80s.

Tuesday seems to be the day of the week for rain and thunderstorms lately, and next week will follow the trend. That is when the next front is expected to push into the area. Showers and storms will be possible, but it is far too early to speculate on the timing, coverage, or intensity.

    Not a drop from all those Tstorms that again went north and south of us. Did get 0.30 after frontal passage which leaves us with a large July deficit.

      Almost the same story for me in Groton, John. Meanwhile, family 20 minutes north got an inch and a half before the post-frontal rain.
